    EDP and Engie's offshore wind consortium bids for 790 MW in the Netherlands

    May 19, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Ocean Winds, the international consortium created by EDP Renováveis and the French Engie for the development of offshore wind projects in the world, submitted a proposal to the Dutch government for one of the zones of the Hollandse Kust West (HKW) park. With this application it wants the right to develop about 790 MW of offshore wind capacity.

      Located 53 km off the coast, the site for the future offshore wind farm with technology fixed to the seabed (unlike the floating turbines that Ocean Winds has in Viana do Castelo) covers an area of approximately 88 km2 and is expected to generate more than 3.4 TWh of clean energy.

      With a total portfolio of 11.2 GW of gross capacity, Ocean Winds is already present in seven countries with 12 offshore wind projects - including those already in operation Moray East (UK, 950 MW), Seamade (Belgium, 487 MW) and WindFloat Atlantic (Portugal, 25 MW).

With a bid focused on ecological criteria, we imagine that the HKW Site VI project sets a new standard for also integrating ecology into future wind farm projects. Ocean Winds has put together a program comprised of numerous investments and innovations that span the design, construction and operation phases. By taking a nature inclusive approach to wind farm development, our proposal will provide a positive contribution to ecology in the North Sea with maximum output in ecological knowledge," said Grzegorz Gorski, Chief Operating Officer of Ocean Winds.
